February 2010 Feature - Acute Accent

Continuing the Artisan Feature series for February 2010:

Acute Accent is the creation of Shan Johnson Sevcik, who started making wallets and purses in frustration at the selection available to her. She has yet to come up with the perfect design, but is always working on it. All the designs for items made by Acute Accent are original - no patterns are used. Functional, durable, and beautiful are the goals for the items at Acute Accent, and with a perfectionist at the sewing machine, the quality of construction is excellent.

Shan started her business in early 2008, and it has been growing slowly but steadily. She hopes to continue this trend, as it is her only job and she is full of enthusiasm, new plans, and new designs.
